Search turns to desperation

Agawam, MA

Hi all,
Has anyone gotten frustrated searching for a plant? A couple of years ago, I decided that I wanted to add a watermelon peperomia (P. sandersii) to my peperomia collection. I started casually looking, figuring they were pretty common and would pop up somewhere - I still haven't found one, so now I'm on a mission! So, if anyone happens to have one and could spare a few leaves for trade or SASE, that would be great. If not, feel free to share your plant search-in-vain stories.

I looked in Glasshouse works, and they have a comparatively expensive clone of P.argyeria (sp?) from the NY botanical garden. It's lovely in the photo. You can scroll down to its listing and look at it here:

They would likely send a really small one or a rooted cutting, but they've never sent me a bad plant.
They've had just about everything I've been wanting & couldn't find elsewhere. Of course they've also had a lot of plants I didn't know I NEEDED until I read the description in their catalogue...

I have been searching for a rope hoya it seems forever. I am really getting frusterated as I really want this plant. But living in a rural area with no nurserys guess I will be looking for a long time.But when I am on a quest I never give up!!! Lol. Doris

Here's a link to the page containing their Hoyas. I don't see it listed, but the Latin name for it is usually listed as H.carnosa 'Crinkle Curl.'
Just scroll down to the Hoyas...

ps. they'll have it again eventually, and there's some small likelihood it could end up in the Collection.
